Prometheus of the East



author's note:

Usually, it irritates me when a poet references an ancient god--when a poet uses an ancient god to deliver his message.

But Prometheus, that's different...

Prometheus hardly seems ancient.  Prometheus seems so close to us...Anyway, he's close to me.


PROMETHEUS OF THE EAST

Bound
to this cliff rock
I curse
an unseen god

yet at this waterfall
I also praise all
the drops of god
I see.
